  1. My prayers are with David’s family. He was a wonderful person to work with and he always made me laugh. He had a great heart for others and I admire him for that. I was blessed to work at cvs with David for 6 years. He was a caring person and he even went to my mother’s viewing when she passed away on January of this year. I will forever appreciate that. Thanks for being my friend and a good pharmacist David! You will never be forgotten. Rest in peace David
    Love always

  2. Condolences to the Magliolo family. Even though they both lived in Dickinson for a long period of time they didn’t know each other until they met at The Terrace. She attempted to introduced me to him in the dining room but I already knew him!

  3. What a great friend and co-worker: CVS and David Magliolo – synonymous in my world 🙂 7346 was such a great experience for me, and you were a key element. I am so grateful that I got to work with you and got to know you – a good man with an overabundance of kindness and off the wall wit. I am a better person for having known you!!

    Rest in Peace David, you will be missed….
